Dear Tim Brown Tours, We are arriving in Durban on Monday 20th October 2017. We are interested in the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve day safari for Tuesday 1st November 2017. Can you please confirm that we would be collected and returned to our hotel, is the 5-6 hours time spent at the location or does this include travel time, the cost for two persons in a open top vehicle and closed vehicle as part of your group, would you require a deposit and how much, if so, do we pay the balance on the day and do you have availability for the Tuesday? I would be grateful for an early response so we can book the tour. Michelle.
